Three England stars named in Autumn Nations Series Team of the Week

It’s that time of the week where we compile our dream side from the weekend’s action, here is RUCK’S Autumn Nations Series Team of the Week for round two:

Autumn Nations Series Team of the Week: Round 2


Fullback: Freddie Steward (England)

Telegraph 9/10: “Matsushima left the door open and Steward strolled through for the opening try. Developing into a great attacker, one kick return leading to Smith’s try. Brilliant in the air – England’s best player right now?”

Winger: Ange Capuozzo (Italy)

Telegraph 9/10: “He scored a brace of tries as Italy claimed a historic first-ever victory over Australia at the 19th attempt in Florence on Saturday.”

Winger: Sekou Macalou (France)

Planet Rugby 8/10: “The flanker was excellent on the wing as he showed his versatility,”


Outside-centre: George North (Wales)

Wales Online 8/10: “Fired up from start to finish. North stopped a dangerous early raid from the Pumas and went on to put in a number of jolting tackles. There was also an immense carry from the Wales No. 13 that must have rattled every bone in Santiago Carreras’ body.”

Inside-centre: Owen Farrell (England)

Telegraph 8/10: “Quick combination with Smith led to Steward’s try. Good turnover led to Porter’s first try and he created Porter’s second with a left-foot chip behind. One hammering tackle.”
